South Side Salutations; The Sox Downward Spiral Continues

As of Sat June 18th the White Sox are 35-33 even worse, they are 10-25 in the last 35 games. This has been the worst stretch they have had since 2013 where they lost 99 games.  This has gone from a really good team to a terrible no heart playing team. We see some signs like when they came back from 7-0 down against the tigers to beat them 10-9 that this team may come out of it. Then we Go to Cleveland and for the last two games have just plain sucked.  Last night Quintana only giving up two runs but didn’t get a decision because the Sox tied it up in the top of the 9th only to lose the game in the bottom of the 9th 3-2.JoseQuintanaCenter

Today James Shields went 1.2 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 3 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR  after allowing 14 runs in 7 innings he now has a ballooning 21.00 ERA. So why did we even bother trading for this guy?  We had Latos and Danks doing this bad and now we are stuck with this person for 2 years unless we do something quick. The two former pitchers mentioned have been released with the White Sox stuck paying their salaries as they watch this team fall further and further out of contention from the comfort of their couches in their lush homes.

Lately, I have gotten the feeling that maybe Jerry should wake up and fire everybody Hahn, Kenny, and Robin. The Padres obviously got one over on us by trading Shields away and now we are stuck with him.  In April we were in 1st place by 3 games now we are 4.5 games behind the Cleveland Indians and only a few games separate us from the Royals and Tigers.  Thank God for the abysmal Twins or we would probably be in last place right now.

If we get swept tomorrow and lose to Boston this week Robin needs to go this can’t keep up, we have been in this downward spiral since May, how can you keep a manager who has had 3 losing seasons in a row and now we have a major collapse and he doesn’t seem to understand what he is doing? Robin can’t make out lineups right. But, it seems since he put Tim Anderson, whom they called up last week, and Eaton in the two hole the top of the lineup has gotten better. Yet we still have days where our offense is just not there. We need another left-handed bat in this line-up and the bullpen needs help with all these bad James Shields starts. Hahn needs to wake up and see that it is time for Robin to go we can’t go on like this no more.

In a perfect world Jerry would sell the team fire everybody and maybe do a whole overhaul to make this team better like I hate to say it, the north side did.  As much as I can’t stand the Cubs and nor would I root for them, they have a good team. We need to get back to how it was in 2005 and 2008.  The fans are tired of losing, tired of Robin messing up every game. The Fans are sick and tired of losing we want a winner on the south side, we want to be in the playoffs. So, we once again need to fire Robin to get it started.
